**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Total mixture of sand and iron = 1 kg

Quantity of iron = $\frac{20}{100} \times 1 = 0.2$ kg

Let $x$ kg of sand should be added, thus total iron in the mixture

=> $0.2=\frac{10}{100} \times (x+1)$

=> $2=x+1$

=> $x=2-1=1$ kg

=> Ans – (A)

**2)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let P has = $Rs. 100x$

=> Amount with Q = $100x + \frac{25}{100} \times 100x = Rs. 125x$

=> Amount with R = $\frac{1}{5} \times 125x = Rs. 25x$

Total amount together = $100x + 125x + 25x = 150$

=> $x = \frac{150}{250} = \frac{3}{5}$

=> $x = 0.6$

$\therefore$ Amount with P alone = $100 \times 0.6 = Rs. 60$

**3)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let us rank the person according to the marks scored by them, where 1 -> highest marks and 5 -> lowest marks.

Only one person scored less marks than B, => B = 4

Also, AÂ > DÂ >Â B and $A \neq 1$

=> A = 2 and D = 3

Thus, ranking from 1-5 = C/E , A , D , B , E/C

$\therefore$ A scored the second highest marks.

**4)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Amount with A = $Rs. 4x$

=> Amount with C = $\frac{3}{4} \times 4x = Rs. 3x$

=> Amount withÂ B = $Rs. (3x – 50)$

Total amount with A,B & C = $4x + 3x + (3x – 50) = 250$

=> $10x = 250 + 50 = 300$

=> $x = \frac{300}{10} = 30$

$\therefore$ Amount with A = $4 \times 30 = Rs. 120$

**5)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Total amount = 97836

No. of children = 31

Since amount is distributed equally

=> Amount each child will get = $\frac{97836}{31}$ = Rs. 3,156

**6)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

There are 30 students and 2 teachers.

Sweets received by each student = $\frac{20}{100} * 30$ = 6

=> Total sweets received by all the students = 30 * 6 = 180

Sweets received by each teacher = $\frac{30}{100} * 30$ = 9

=> Total sweets received by both teachers = 2 * 9 = 18

$\therefore$ Total sweets distributed in class = 180 + 18 = 198

**7)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let the cost of a folder = Rs. $x$

and cost of a pen = Rs. $y$

=> $20x + 15y = 995$

Multiplying the above equation by $(\frac{3}{5})$, we getÂ :

=> $\frac{3}{5} \times (20x + 15y = 995)$

=> $12x + 9y = 597$

$\therefore$ Cost of 12 folders and 9 pens is Rs. 597

**8)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let the cost of a note-book = Rs. $x$

and cost of a pen = Rs. $y$

=> $12x + 16y = 852$

Multiplying the above equation by $(\frac{3}{4})$, we getÂ :

=> $\frac{3}{4} \times (12x + 16y = 852)$

=> $9x + 12y = 639$

$\therefore$ Cost of 9 note-books and 12 pens is Rs. 639

**9)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let the cost of a chair = Rs. $x$

and cost of a table = Rs. $y$

=> $10x + 15y = 15525$

Multiplying the above equation by $(\frac{4}{5})$, we getÂ :

=> $\frac{4}{5} \times (10x + 15y = 15525)$

=> $8x + 12y = 12420$

$\therefore$ Cost of 8 chairs and 12 tables is Rs. 12,420

**10)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Case I : Trader sells 150 metres of cloth for Rs. 6,600

=> S.P. per metre = Rs. $\frac{6600}{150}$

= Rs. 44

Case II : TraderÂ sells 300 metres of cloth for Rs. 12,750

=> S.P. per metre = Rs. $\frac{12750}{300}$

= Rs. 42.5

$\therefore$ Required discount = Rs. (44 – 42.5) = Rs. 1.5
